Michèle Mercier is about to be sliced in two in THE NIGHTS OF LUCRETIA BORGIA

Damsel in distress!

That looks like some bad, loose bondage! I believe if she applied herself, she could be out of those bonds in under ten seconds. Pretty common in mainstream films, but you'd think in a scene whose dramatic essence is about being helpless as the blade descends, they might have tred to make her look helpless.

This still, or one very close to it in the scene, appeared in "Sadism In The Cinema" (1965), without attribution.

Now, does anybody have the film?Was the intention to Do Her In, or just to Induce Loqucity in an otherwise-unwilling subject?
